The title of this popular, long-used booklet, Aids to Investigation of Peripheral Nerve Injuries, war memorandum 7, has been changed to Aids to Examination of the Peripheral Nervous System, but the content is almost identical. However, all of the illustrations are new, with improved composition, photography, and reproduction.
Many trainees in neurology and not a few practitioners have little exposure to peripheral nerve lesions and to the often difficult differential diagnosis from root and plexus syndromes.
Hence, this inexpensive and valuable booklet will retain its popularity. It should be available to all neurologists, neurosurgeons, and electromyographers.
One regrets only that it does not illustrate and describe more abnormal conditions.
